Sunday's forecast
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Sunday started out in the low 70s under partly cloudy skies. Expect a substantial warm up during the day on Sunday, with afternoon temperatures hitting the low 90s. Sundday afternoon's humidity will be formidable. Your feels like temperatures will be closer to the mid to upper 90s. 

 As we hit the low 90s, the showers and thunderstorms become more numerous and intense. Isolated strong storms are possible, with gusty winds and wet microbursts being the primary concern.  Expect 60% coverage of showers and thunderstorms after 3:00pm.

Bring your poncho if you are heading to Florida Country SuperFest- no umbrellas allowed in the stadium and storms will be scattered during the afternoon hours, firing up between 2:00 and 3:00pm.

Sunday evening, temperatures slowly sink under partly cloudy skies, and the potential for rain shrinks as we head into the evening hours. Overnight temperatures get into the low 70s, with calm winds.
